The NJ Housewife says she "needs help" because she's being attacked.

Teresa Giudice In Touch
Throughout essentially this entire season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice has been feuding with someone -- often several people at one time, and when it all came to a head at the explosive reunion taping earlier this month, Teresa says she just couldn't handle it anymore.

“I said to myself I wasn’t going to get upset, but I couldn’t help it,” Teresa says in an exclusive interview with In Touch, adding that "after the taping was done, I broke down. I started crying, and I couldn’t stop."



At the reunion, Teresa faced off with pretty much all of her cast members at one point, making for an especially tense scene that apparently had  a major impact on Teresa's psyche.

“I need help ... Everyone is against me and ganging up on me," Teresa tells In Touch.

In the interview she maintains that she had nothing to do with Angelo ambushing Melissa Gorga claiming that she used to dance for him at a strip club, despite him admitting on camera that Kim and Teresa put him up to it. “I know in my heart I did nothing. I feel like I’m making myself sick over this," Teresa says.



Pick up In Touch (on newsstands today) to read the full interview, and be sure to tune into the intense reunion kick-off this Sunday  night.

OMG i have gotton so ticked at how all the women just twist and accuse you for any thing someone else starts that comes past you then the one who put the trash out is totally disregarded for any of it an they put it all on you...jealousy and they're not good friends for not standing by you through all the bad but tell you to shut up when you want to say 1 word about they're strugles..if i were you i would close the door (your heart) on these fair weathered people..jacklyn didnt come out not for you but because she gained so much weight, carolyn is so full of anger she cant smell the coffee, mellisa needs to own herself dancer, singer or not...there just all full of hatried...you need to walk!

Not sure if this articile is true but I want to give a message to Tre:  Love you, hang in there, you are the best!  You are the show.  The others are petty and jealous and boring.

- We all Blog our opinions about the Housewife's, But at the end of the day Good or Bad its a Reality Show and about Ratings , I've been a Fan of Teresa's ( like I said) From day one....! The show was Fun and about Family. Yes Teresa has put her foot in her mouth more than once, And in her way Apologized for it...As a viewer the show has become Darker, With the Casting of Melissa and Kathy this is her Family..That Attacked her with a Bang!! (Christening) and with each Season you Hoped for a Happy Ending, (That never was ) Blow after Blow Teresa was dodging and ducking , While trying to keep a Smile for her Children..and Fans!! Caroline and Jac continued to Gloat at her Unhappiness and Misfortune by Bullying and kicking her when she was down..But that still wasn't enough to "BREAK TERESA" and she's "MY HERO" as a women she held her own....Go Tre..... Whoop Whoop..

Did anyone notice that the ONLY reason she feels like she is having a "breakdown" is because she was "bullied" .....Why is it that she and her "Team Tre" people only see how she feels and NEVER consider the pain she has caused others?

We all know how the reunion is going to go. It is them against her. That is how this show has run for the past two seasons.  Is Teresa over the top , run off at the mouth, and talks enough circles to make on dizzy, Yes. But, to be made the focus of everyones anger, insults, and so forth, has to put a dent in ones armor. Teresa is no saint but constantly be in the crossfire is a lot to deal with. Caroline, Melissa, and Kathy have done so much to hide who they really are. I suspect they have long claws and sharp tongues to anyone who is not on their team. 

I don't think Teresa meant to attack overweight people. I think she was backed in a corner and came out with the first thought that popped in her head.  As usual she did not think before she spoke.

Theresa really did not have anything to do with this baldhead man comments. I dont understand why everyone is so against her because she is real as they come. Theresa just needs to start speaking up more than what she does and for her brother, he is too quick to take sides with another family who would gang up against him and his sister in a second. I am ill over this situation and I really hope that Theresa and her brother talk about this. He really needs to watch the tapes to see the truth. Caroline needs to sit down and shut up because she is really driving me crazy. Caroline has no reason to be upset with Theresa! I love Theresa. People are angry because she does not put all her business out there... so what! I hope she does well in life and I hope her marriage is well. GO THERESA!

teresa has also offended many potental buyers of her products by showing her true colors and how she really feels about overweight people, thats over fifty percent of the u.s. so she better hope the other half need a cookbook.

Love the Pic by the way!  Director:  "Teresa, look sad"  Teresa "How is this?"  Director:  "I guess it will have to do!"

Anyone under that kind of pressure of constant accusations will break. The other women ate pretty relentless. Pretty unbelieveable that her brother could watch all the episodes and still be so against his sister.

It isn't a coincidence that she is having a breakdown after she has been exposed. A breakdown is her last ditch effort at regaining any of the friendships she has lost. I think the only one who might fall for it will be Kathy because she is so nice and forgiving.

I don't usually comment but I have had it.  I used to love watching the NJ housewives but I can't stand it anymore.  If Theresa leaves who is it going to be next they go after? Maybe melissa or Kathy. I used to love Caroline and in away I still do but sometimes it seems that if people don't do what she thinks they should do then its all out war. Look at the first season when she didn't want Jac friends with danielle.  Every family has issuses but other people need to stay out of it because family always comes back together. So like i said who's next because if melissa and kathy make up with theresa that is not going to make caroline happy just think about that.

Clearly when the Angelo guy approached Melissa that scared look on her face gave it all away.  She knew exactly who he was! and she remembered him! it feels like she is hiding something much bigger then being a dancer..... that's why she's scared that is going to effect her relationship. And putting all the blame on you makes her look good. Stay Strong Teresa

Teresa has a right to break down. How much can that women take?  She is taken the role on for everything and juggling way to much. Then because Melisa kept something from Joe her husband she wants to flip and make the heat about Teresa. She admited she was a shot girl for a week then denies working there. Melisa own up to your past! Stop blaming your sister n law for your decisions. The skeletons out of the closet. Why all the drama? Why do the kids have to suffer? NOt to mention I have a younger brother he's 29 an you think I wouldnt tell him the info at least she came to you first! NO body set anybody up! Kim D if anything is the one who brought it to light but its a fact so deal with it! Love the both of you but I feel for you and the kids! @Teresa_Giudice @Melissagorga @joegorga

Personally, I would have cracked long ago. She is a tough lady. It seems they want to destroy her because... um I'm not sure. Oh well she entertains me and that is all that matters. The rest of the cast is trying to hard to make viewers be on their side and that is a turn off.

If you watched her body language during the show, it seemed evident  (or so it seems) that she WAS involved in the "set up" on Melissa.  You can say anything you want, however, your body language will typically give you away.   I think she is doing anything she can to insure that she remains on the show.... even if it means hurting those that once truly cared about her.  In her defense, if my husband was facing "going away" for a period of time, I am not sure how far I would go in order to provide for my family during his "absence".   She is (as she has phrased it...) "bringing in the bacon"!

Teresa is the only person that is truly herself on the show.  Good or bad...she is not fake.  Cant say the same for the others  and I am not biased.

Teresa said and did NOTHING wrong (this time). Funny how Jacqueline got all these text messages but only chose to share that info AFTER things blew up. Jacqueline kept repeating over & over again, "Set Up. Teresa set her up". That's BS. Jacqueline deliberately set Teresa up with those nasty comments to which she had no proof. Noone cares whether Melissa danced or not, but to blame Teresa without the facts is pure WRONG. And then they all jumped on the band wagon. Kim definitely insigated the drama, but Caroline and Jacqueline were both at her shop before the show. I believe they both conspired with Kim to get at Teresa. And why on earth does Caroline's daughter always have to put in her 2 cents. Teresa really got a raw deal on this one!!!

Love Teresa and know the others are bullying her and ganging up due to jealousy.  I hope they see what they have done to their old friend.  I just pray Teresa will be okay.  They better reassess their loyalties to Melissa as she is a compulsive liar.

She is just frantically trying to get this out there before the reunion airs so she will have an excuse for what sounds like her ususal bad behavior.

Well I think Teresa has a hard time communicating her thoughts verbally so she comes across as a bit flighty and unsure, but thats the last thing she is , she's in fact is very smart. Dina has it right to distance herself from her toxic family as should Teresa.

Teresa, your fans know you weren't behind this so call set up. Melissa just over ACTED to use it in her favor. I can't imagine what it would be like to be bullied for 2 season, eventually it would take it's toll, so if you did brake down at the reunion it's understandable, I just don't know how you kept it in for so long. I wish you nothing but the best and hope you are in a much happier place today!

With as much as people love to say Teresa is dumb, she is extremely business savvy. The other women on the show should stop running their mouths about her for a minute and take notes on how it's done.

In Touch must be crazy.  Joe already admitted they sell lies to mags.  So who is going to waste their money buying this mag?

 @eaglefan51

 I'm a lot like Teresa and have a hard time articulating my thoughts because of a speech impediment.  Yet, her cast mates and Andy make fun of her.  She been pushed up against the wall and came out fighting.  Caroline deserved that statement because of the way she has trashed talked her own daugthers weight all season.

 I sure hope none of the people in her charity that she cares so much for are overweight.  Ouch.

 @eaglefan51 oh come on, like anyone would believe at this point that what is in mag is true...this is what jac, car. mell. etc are hoping for - to get her products out of shelves, so there is more space for their failing stuff...come on. Teresa will continue to do well. Magazines like this are not going to ruin her.

 @KS42288 Um, Caroline said to Melissa, "If our friendship gets to be to much for you (or Teresa), tell me and Caroline will go away"...Caroline may be rough around the edges, but she's honest and caring. That sounds to me like a classy lady. Unlike Teresa's theory of 'If I don't like them, you shouldn't either, cause you're my friend'. That sounds to me like an immature, selfish, B**CH!!

 @Bellisamo If Jac knew why didnt she get her friend Melissa out of there instead of sitting there reading texts?

@s.martin It's people like you that keep these idiots on tv...I'm sure their is a good charity that would love the money you waste on her products ...sorry if this comes off mean, just sickens me to see someone who if you remember just a few short years ago was throwing money (cash) (no IRS) around, buying whatever,instead of saving for her future along with her girls future. Now she's a business women...Oh and Now she wants to be involved with Trump charity ....Omg! If this is true a % of ALL her profits should go to the charity ...Doubt it will happen.

@walesgirl He didnt say they say lies to magazines. He said that sometimes when magazines write articles they twist ur words and make up stories to sell magazines but direct quotes can't be lies. Get ur story straight before u type for the world to see.

But according to her blog she agreed to this story.  She wanted to get the "truth" out there.  But you are right, it is probably not to be believed.

 @linda.abbott.9212  @dawn818 Teresa is a fire starter! It's everyone else fault. Poor baby always being attacked. 40 years old and she can never admit her faults. How about her calling Jacqueline a "C" word during her confessional on the finale. How can anyone defend a low life like that?

We will have to see what the reunion has to offer and see what Caroline has to apologize for.  I have only seen the clip which looks like Teresa is getting extremely personal and ugly.  Not to mention the exert above makes me think she is posturing for an excuse.  One thing Caroline has said is that she didn't like herself very much this season.  Teresa of course said she hasn't done anything wrong.

 @ally2001  @walesgirl wrong, he admitted they sell stories that aren't true, then he insulted people for believing their lives.
